Can't seem to figure out why I can't get the encoder tool to display in a column in mp3tag. I use %_tool% as the value name and nothing gets displayed. Same files in fb2k display tool type with (in fb2k) $info(tool). Similar issue with displaying total tracks. In mp3tag, I'm using %_total% and nothing displays. In fb2k I see the total tracks. In mp3tag I do see the total in the track number (e.g., 2/11) but not in the total column I created. These outcomes are true across files coded with different encoders. But for example, recently encoded files with dbpoweramp (CD > FLAC > Lame mp3) don't show tool or total tracks), but do show these items in fb2k. Note that the FLAC file DOES in fact show the tool (flac ver 1.20) in mp3tag.
I'm using mp3tag 2.40. Thanks for any thoughts on what I'm missing.
